Sugar Rush, St Andrews Road, Glasgow, G41 1PF

Sugar Rush is located in a strange no man’s land between Darnley Street and St. Andrew’s Road.  We passed by one day in the car and thought it looked intriguing, so had to pop in.

Popular with the local community, the cafe was busy when we visited.  A large display of ice cream morphs into some kind of art deco/rocket/car shaped serving area.

At first sight of the menu we thought hmm a little dear, but then the ice cream came out….huge…and you could safely feed two people from one of these!

The Gulub Jamin Sundae (£4.95) has two scoops of Equi’s double cream vanilla ice cream, three gulab jamun, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and a wafer.

With this I added to the sugar coma with a hot chocolate

Mr Foodie went for a crepe and a chai.

It may look a little bit disappointing looking in comparison to the above but the option to add ice-cream was available, Mr Foodie just thought he would try being healthy for once!

sugar rush glasgow chaiDesi Chai £1.60 – milky tea with light cardamom taste, a good one if you aren’t too sure if you would like a proper Indian masala “chai”.

Overall friendly service, delicious food and it’s open until midnight for those late night sugar cravings!

    A great little hidden treasure with a lot of variety of delicious mouth-watering desserts. 13 – 18 different ice cream flavours to choose from – yum! Great décor, very American style.. Friendly staff offered great customer service and let you try the different flavours of ice cream. They also offer mocktails, savoury snacks.. we had gol guppay and samomsa salads and topped off with a huge ice cream sundae! I notice they make freshly made waffles and crepes… mmm!!
    would definitely recommend this place for a cheeky a night out open till midnight .
